Vista is the biggest failure in the history of computing

 I am just taking a small revenge against the operating system which has made my life miserable for the past 1.5 months.
It's slow, it's ugly, it's unreliable.
It gives you features that you don't need and doesn't give you feature you need.
It still forces you to upgrade to a new 64bits version if you want to manage 4GB RAM...
It hangs trying to resume from sleep mode and I had to reboot countless times crashing my running applications.
Its default security configuration is simply paranoid.
Its default file view settings treats all files as Music files even if you have a single MP3 in a directory.
To change an environment variable you have to click on 4 different dialogs.
To reach a reasonable speed on a monster computer I had to disable all visual effects - and still XP was a lot faster with all the visual effects.
The OS alone hogs 1.2 GB RAM... WTF!!!
It starts automatically a lot of services you will never need - I had to make them start manually in an attempt to bring startup time below 10 minutes!

If I were his Project Manager I would consider learning agriculture, fishing and hunting and hide in the Amazon Forest for the rest of my life.

I might even join him because using Vista makes me very pessimistic about the future of computing and willing to quit this job. Instead of getting better, we are getting worse and worse.

If you try to upgrade to Vista  64 bits, you get all the time this error:

1067 - There is a technical issue that we are actively working on. Please try again later. If the problem persists after 24 hours, please contact our support team and reference error code 1067 for assistance. 
 I have tried so many times...this is obscene...
